Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. Set is 1959 for Act I, and 2009 for Act II. Things get out of whack in a dazzling whirlpool of words, opinions, aspirations...and bigotry, from a wide cross-section of indelible characters from two different times: the quaint post-war era when everything was possible, and the mercurial post-modern age when nothing is certain.
Dec 5 - Dec 29, 2013 (opens Thu Dec 5 at 7:30pm)
A Chicago Premiere. A riveting drama one minute, a riotous comedy the next, Elemeno Pea is a blistering satire about how we humans deal with a critical non-living thing: money.
